Source: Pack worried about RB Eddie Lacy who is 'very sore'

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Green Bay Packers are concerned about the health of running back Eddie Lacy and his availability for Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bears, according to a source.

Lacy was the only active halfback for the Packers in their 30-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. He was playing with a sprained left ankle and was held to just 65 yards on 17 carries.

He didn't practice Monday and will miss practice again on Tuesday, coach Mike McCarthy said, adding that Lacy was "very sore."

"I can't see him playing'' against the Bears, the source told ESPN.

Fantasy Impact: 

Lacy's availability for Thursday night might have played a role in motivating general manager Ted Thompson to make his first player trade since 2010, getting Knile Davis from the Chiefs. The Packers also will promote rookie running back Don Jackson from the practice squad for Thursday night, a source told ESPN's Rob Demovsky. The plan is for Jackson to be active Thursday night against the Bears so the Packers are not left with just one natural halfback, as they were against the Cowboys.
